If you are planning to visit the Auburn, California area and have your golf clubs with you make sure you stop by Darkhorse Golf Course. Not for the faint of heart but it's a beautiful setting and well maintained. Just hope that the Green Keeper had a good night because if he comes to work in a bad mood he... More

I make it a point to play this course every time I visit the in-laws who live within 10 minutes of the course, and I play it at least 2-3 times per visit. Over the past 9 years I've seen it go through at least two management changes and one is currently underway based on their lack of liqueur license... More

Darkhorse is a well laid out course that is well taken care of. The fairways are wide but placement is key. The greens are large and well kept. The staff is friendly and always ready to help you out as needed. This course is fine for the novice to the elite golfer. The club house is small but well stocked.... More

If you're visiting the Auburn or Grass Valley area and enjoy golf then a trip to play Dark Horse is well worth your consideration. It's beautifully laid out as others have commented and from the golf shop to the driving range back to the 19th hole you're going to love the total experience. It's tucked away in the woods, a...

Dark Horse is a quality course with few shortcomings. Modest cost ($42). Well maintained (exceptions are some of the sand traps), GPS carts and an adequate bar and club house.

We played this beautiful course and really enjoyed it. The course was in great shape, the staff was nice. The fairways are nice and open but the greens are very challenging. Beautiful elevated tee boxes offer majestic mountain views, with deer roaming around the course. We loved it and would definitely play here again.

When my family comes to visit, they always plan a day of golf at Dark Horse. They have "good deals" during the middle of the day.

We visited Auburn for golf and sightseeing and chose to play at Darkhorse. We were not disappointed. It's great golf for the price. Very friendly starter and shop staff. The bent grass greens were in outstanding condition. Fairways were good, tees ok. The bunkers didn't have a lot of soft fluffy sand in them but they were consistent all the... More

I have played quite a few golf courses over the years and including Bandon Dunes and Spyglass and find that Darkhorse is just several notches below these other courses. Darkhorse is under new ownership and it's very apparent that the new owners are going to bring the course back to a very positive playing experience. It was apparent that the... More

Very intereting curse to play with many elivation changes and beautiful scenery...but the attention to detail is missing. Tee and greens need help...I'll return because I enjoy the beauty and accept the patchey tee area and ball marks....The staff are all great!!!! Mike
